Berry Sensation Smoothie

June 27, 2015

low glycemic recipeAuthor: Lily Mazzarella
Blueberries are a low-glycemic fruit full of anti-oxidant, blood vessel-strengthening, eye and brain-protecting flavonoids. Raspberry boasts similar anti-oxidant flavonoids, along with a couple of unique compounds: ketones, which appear to have a stimulating effect on our cells’ metabolism, and ellagitannins, which have a potent inhibitory effect on certain cancer cell lines, at least in vitro.






Research from the USDA showed that organic raspberries boast great anti-oxidant activity (which makes sense—since flavonoids and other goodies are a plant’s natural herbivory defense compounds). Also, buy and pick ripe raspberries—research out of Cornell University shows they have more of the good stuff. Pineapple is the source of the anti-inflammatory compound bromelain. If pineapple doesn’t agree with you or bothers your mouth, leave it out!

Ingredients

8-12 oz of water, coconut, hemp, almond or brazil nut milk
1⁄4 c raw cashews (best soaked overnight; discard soaking water)
1 c mixed blueberry, raspberry, and blackberry, fresh or frozen
1⁄2 organic pineapple (or papaya, if preferred), fresh or frozen
1-2 tsps flax seeds (best if ground)
1⁄2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp Divine Turmeric Paste
1 serving Protein Powder of choice  (we recommend NutriBiotic’s organic, raw sprouted brown rice protein OR Great Lakes Hydrolyzed Collagen)

Directions

Wash all ingredients well and blend!
